This is just a potential mockup using preexisting images.

By all means, If you want to take over the project, I know you could do it better.

I still plan on making my own though.


Not at all. This one is yours. Looking forward to seeing what you do.

So the project is really starting to become exciting, though itís never gonna be an affordable option. Itís expensive no matter how you look at it, but once you own one itís internal storage can support any future games projects. Itís also truly portable for the first time, and thatís the appeal for someone like me.

I actually found this quite interesting when looking at my NES/SNES Classic and the Pocket C.H.I.P:


NES and SNES Classic Specs:
Allwinner R16 Cortex A7
Mali 400 GPU
256MB DDR 3
512MB NAND Flash

Pocket C.H.I.P Specs:
Allwinner R8M Cortex A8
Mali 400 GPU
512 MB DDR 3
4GB NAND Flash

They both contain Allwinner R-Series processors (and they are the only devices to use R-Series) and Mali 400 Graphics.

Itís almost like Pocket Chip was always intended to be the Virtual Boy Classic.

How funny would it be if Nintendo planned it all along and you just beat them to it XD

Honestly, a Pocket Chip would also make an amazing GameBoy Classic.

Wow, Pocket C.H.I.P is actually pretty big. I am not sure why I was picturing something much tinier.

I installed Firefox on my Pocket C.H.I.P, this device is actually pretty cool; for several different reasons.

One step down! I got PocketCHIP to finally display VB games in side by side mode, now I have to figure how to get a controller working (itís not just plug n play). Itís not easy being a first time Linux user.

Today was a day of success, I have the 3D functioning (occasional slowdown), the sound (a little choppy, still trying to get it a bit smoother) and controller support.


Ladies and gentleman, we have a Virtual Boy! Now I just have to patiently await the 3D printed parts.
